Premier Power Renewable Energy has completed the connection to the Enel electric power grid for the San Giorgio Jonico solar power plant in Italy. The 1MW plant was connected on June 30 to a 20kV medium-voltage Enel line. This is the third solar power plant in the company’s 1MW series for Italian customers.
“San Giorgio Jonico is the third in a series of 1.0 MW Italian solar power plant projects, following the Laterza 1 and Monteparano plants, which we connected to the Italian power grid before the end of the first half of 2010,” said Dean R. Marks, chief executive officer of Premier Power. “The experience we’ve obtained from these projects has been invaluable.”
The 230W crystalline silicon modules by Canadian Solar were employed as were 330kW Aurora inverters by Power One.
